BC Memes- Who knew BC had so much (sarcastic) creativity running through its veins? Launched only a few days ago, the BC Memes Facebook page has over 3,600 likes, and it is easy to see why. Commenting on everything from Professors and Pastries to CoRo conundrums, BC Memes exposes the hilariously awkward problems and experiences of everyday life in Chestnut Hill. Lets keep em' coming everybody.
Dream Team- Wedding Crasher fans, rejoice. Fox recently announced that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson will be reunited once again in Interns, a movie about middle-aged men who are laid off and forced to become interns for a new start-up company. Sounds Old-Schoolish to us, and we like it.
Comeback Kids- BC basketball beat the top ranked Florida Seminoles last night 64-60, coming back from a 13 point gap in the first half. Long the punching bag for BC athletics, last nights "W" taught us to never lose faith in the underdogs.
A Whale of a Tale- Fishermen in Pakistan found a 40 foot whale shark earlier this week. When they performed an autopsy, they discovered that ancient Biblical character Jonah had comfortably fashioned himself a three bedroom, three bath apartment with adjacent garden. Turns out when God gave him the chance of redemption, he went out, realized he was in Pakistan, then just went right back in.
Major Misstep- Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana accidently used a satirical piece on Planned Parenthood from The Onion as factual evidence against abortion. Don't feel bad for Congressman Fleming, however. His starring role in "True Life: I have a third grade education and am the potential result of centuries of incest" is posed to give him a healthy amount of cash.
Breaking the code of conduct- To the kid who repeatedly asked in-depth questions at 3:58 in my Philosophy of the Person class, everyone hates you. There's a reason no one sits next to you, and there is a reason everyone groans when you open your mouth. If you won't take the obvious social hints of rolling eyes and dirty looks, let me state it clearly: please, save the questions for after class or an e-mail to the professor.
